Why Krishna not married Radha ?

Radha was a gopi, a cowherd’s wife, who became the beloved of Krishna during his childhood.

She was known for her beauty and grace and was considered to be the most beloved of Krishna’s many consorts.

The love of Krishna and Radha has been given expression in lyrical poetry of many Indian languages, particularly Bengali.

The Bengali saint Chaitanya was said to be an incarnation of both Krishna and Radha

he was Krishna on the inside and Radha on the outside. Chaitanya also composed many devotional poems celebrating the divine love, but they have not survived.

Even today, when people visit the Braj Bhoomi, they hear the chants of Radhe Radhe. Mathura is Shri Krishna Janma Bhoomi, which means that it is the place where Lord Krishna was born.

Mathura, Vrindavan, and the adjoining Gokul regions are part of the Braj Bhoomi region associated with the early life of Krishna.

Yet, devotees either hail Radha or take Krishna’s name as RadheKrishna meaning Radha’s Krishna. Therefore, Radha and Krishna’s names are uttered in one breath as if they as if they are not different but one entity.

Interestingly, Lord Vishnu took birth on earth as Krishna in order to eliminate Kansa and gift the Bhagavad Gita to Arjuna.

During his stay in the Prithvi Loka, he married Rukmini and Satyabhama instead of Radha. Devotees wonder why Krishna never married Radha.
